This video contains the first 14 minutes of EA/Criterion Games' Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit. It shows the first race you participate in, as well as the following two cop-missions.
Same, for the Playstation 3. :D
this and GT5 have left me skint :(
buying it to bad i will be only playing it for one week (unless a GT5 demo hits psn)
I could care less for GT5, tbh. I have a PS3, but id rather have an arcade racer than a sim when its much cheaper to drive my ferrari in real life. :P
I wasn't trying to diss the game, just that for me i will be spedning more time on GT5 then this. I love NFS series with their arcade style gameplay and i love the fact that Critera is behind this one. i'm a big GT fan also and will prob end up putting this in the case for a while.
Picking this up for my 360 on launch and GT5 on launch as well. Busy few weeks for me :D
I'm honestly going to buy this over GT5 for now. I might GT5 in the long run, but Critereon's racers are amazing. I like arcade racers over sims, so that's the big reason. Im not that into sims, but since GT5 is looks fantastic, I'll be picking that up eventually too.
sae here i'm more than an arcade racer than "simulation" BUT GT5 will be the exception . GT5 will be bought because it's a game like no other ( and there won't be another soon ) but NFS is more my style
If there is anything in particular you guys would like to see before the game launches on Tuesday, let me know somehow and I'll try get it captured and up on Youtube!
games gt5 and need 4 speed both are going to keep me busy for quite some time with my games
Getting this and getting GT5 as well. More than enough room for both style of racers for me. I know the other guys in my clan are dreading me getting this though. They never could beat either of my times on the demo.
Buying on day one.. I ain't missing out on this man! :D Same goes for GT5!! GT5 will most likely be getting more attention out of the two though :)
I'm just not a fan of that powersliding arcade gameplay anymore unless I'm dusting off Mariokart 64. But it does look nice and Hot Pursuit was one of my favourite NFS games. Reminded me of the old Chase HQ days. Anyone else remember that one? If there wasnt a GT literally just around the corner I'd probably give it a go but no point in caving now. It would be like saving myself for marriage and then sleeping with some whore 2 weeks from the day. EDIT Hot Pursuit goes back further than them. It was on Playstation and was actually the 3 NFP game I think, before everyone of them started getting a subtitle. Chasing cars, or being chased by the cops is what made it the bomb, thats why I mentioned Chase HQ. Anyway, looks good.
i want a new underground or most wanted, did't like carbon or the one after
Did you ever play the 3DO version Bathy? We used to have compos to see who could cause the most spectacular crash! This is the sort of NFS I've always wanted to see make a return. I was gonna get it, and still will but probably not till the new year. GT5 wins the priority stakes!
two different style of games there...but midnight for me - nfs hot pursuit.
this game just looks like so much more fun than GT5... and yeah, i understand one is a sim, the other a racer.
If you prefer arcade to sim, then it probably is more fun. Nothing wrong with that.
Not for wheel owners it isn't. I am assuming the final version of NFS HPLE wont have good wheel support since the demo didn't and there was no manual transmission option either. If you own a 900 degree FFB wheel GT5 will definitely be the preferred game over NFS:HPLE. I don't understand why Criterion didn't include wheel support options and features since Shift had them. I know they are completely different devs but Shift was a blast to play on a wheel. One of the most fun wheel games I have played this generation. I am waiting on the final version to see if it will include manual transmission and FFB support. If not I will stick to GT5 only and rent (maybe) NFS:HPLE down the road. For a wheel guy like myself, not having wheel support is a deal breaker. For those that use a pad, this game looks to be a blast to play.
I'll be getting both this and GT5 are on my to get list. Even though I prefer simulation racing to arcade racing, I enjoy both. Plus, I enjoy Criterion's racers as much as I enjoy GT.
BLACKBOX was doing this as HOTPURSUIT 3 instead of criterion. the demo cars sound like your crashing into alumin cans PING!! cant be a shitty driver in this game. if i had to score this crap i would give it a E for Effort. D for trying. just no NFS feeling in it. to much of BURNOUT IN IT.
